Strategic Work Plan

Each spring the GSA student executives work with the GSA Board to produce a Strategic Work Plan (SWP). The SWP is the document that steers and prioritizes the work and initiatives of the GSA. The GSA sees this as a living document, shifting directions as needed as the provincial, federal, and University landscapes change. It is developed annually with reference to the Strategic Work Plans of previous GSA Boards, and provides a planning document for this and future years. The SWP reflects the GSA's vision and mission to advocate for all graduate students to the University of Alberta and the Alberta Government for a safe, supportive, respectful, accessible, and inclusive community that fosters the multi-faceted roles played by graduate students.



In order to develop a set of strategic priorities that reflect the changing needs of graduate students, GSA DEOs invited graduate students to participate in a townhall event on 17 May 2021 and circulated a feedback survey to graduate students during the period of 7-18 May 2021. These consultations initiatives yielded a significant amount of feedback and helped shape the 2021-2022 GSA Board Strategic Work Plan.

The final document was approved by the GSA Board in late June and received by the GSA Council for information at their July meeting. It can now be viewed here.
